Thanks to BoredPanda.com my first-of-a-kind children’s book is being translated in 9 languages and I signed my first international contract!
It all began when I wrote a magical book that would allow my son to create his own fairytale by making the choices within the story. I wished to teach him that the choices we all make are ultimately our own responsibility. So I created a book he could play with. A book we could play with – together as father and son.
The success of “GameTale: The Big Adventure of the Little Gemlin” went beyond my wildest dreams. Parents all over our small country were having the same amazing experience with their children. In only a couple of years, the first two books in the series have become immensely popular in Bulgaria. They turned into a best-seller and won over 10 awards and nominations. But my biggest success remains the glittering sparkle I see in the eyes of the children we meet.
A few months ago I released my GameTale in English for free. I was hoping to make a difference in the lives of children and parents alike. I wrote an article on Bored Panda and your answer was stunning.
I signed my first international contract with a major publisher in Latvia and volunteers from all over the world have began translating my book. Today I am releasing the e-books in Russian and Italian for free. Latvian and Catalan will follow. Spanish, Hungarian, Serbian, and even the unofficial Swiss German.
Thank you all for turning my dreams into reality!
